After spending last night celebrating Washington Huskies guard Isaiah Thomas' evolution as a distributor, today he's back to leading his team as a scorer with 19 points, including 3-for-4 3-point shooting against Arizona Wildcats in the Pac-10 Tournament Finals.
Nevertheless, a more well-rounded effort from the Wildcats has led them to take a slim 36-33 lead at halftime.
Arizona is shooting close to 50 percent from the field with seven players between three and seven points although star forward Derrick Williams is leading the way as perhaps would be expected. Jamelle Horne and Jesse Perry each have six with Perry and Williams tied with a game-high four rebounds.
Ultimately, that comparative balance has been a major statistical difference thus far: while the scoring load has been distributed pretty evenly for Arizona, Washington has relied heavily on Thomas with three starters finishing the half scoreless and Scott Suggs coming off the bench to add five points.
